Notes & Reviews:

Patrick Cohen, accompanied by the Mosaiques Quartet, performs Boccherini's set of six Piano Quintets op.56, which was awarded the diapason d'or. Boccherini must have been particularly fond of these quintets, for he tells us that he transcribed them for quintet with two violas and quintet with guitar. The three works presented here are ambitious: in length, in the complexity of their structure and in the sheer variety of techniques - hence of expression. They thus illustrate the many attractive facets of Boccherini's talent.
